Why are you after antiquated soundcards? Weird to think nothing has surpassed their quality yet. Download a trial of Steinberg Cubase and play your MIDI files through that. Maybe that might put you to peace.
I've never heard of Steinberg Cubase, but growing up, all the gameas that had kickass MT-32 or GM or GS soundtracks that I was stuck listening to with either OPL3, or some really horrible wavetable. I want to hear the game the way cpm[usor intended.
I'll gove Steinberg Cubase a shot.
Part it is nostalgia. i also wasnted an CM-64, MT-32, and SC-55 or 88. I'm been chastised many time that the soundfonts don't measure up to the real thing. Plus, most of my games support EGA, adlib, MT-32 or the PC spreaker, so this is my hane to experiene them in all their glory.
Plus I love vintage hardware, so theres that ,too.
